Aw man, the Sugar Pad is going the way of the dodo. Just when we were really getting into it! Rick Tatnall speaks to us about his sadness…but also his excitement about the events scheduled between now and the jackhammer. Hopefully the City will hold off in time for us to get some more Full Moon Series in!
